Forthcoming films

A quick update on our forthcoming films, including our choice for November.

In September we will be showing
The Railway Man. With yet another superb performance from Colin Firth, who plays Eric Lomax, a soldier who suffered at the hands of the Japanese and who is haunted by the memories. His new wife, played by Nicole Kidman, supports him on his quest to confront the horrors of the past.

For October we lighten the mood somewhat with
Labor Day, a tender love story starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. This film had mixed reviews as it is very different from earlier films by the same director. But don’t let that put you off. I’ve seen it and the acting is superb, it being very much a visual experience that doesn’t rely heavily on dialogue to convey the story.

In November we have
Belle, a historical drama based on the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, who was raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield and his wife, which caused quite a stir in British high society.

We look forward to seeing you at the Parish Hall.
